My interest in the real estate profession began years ago during a twenty plus year successful sales career in sales which included the building materials industry. I have applied this sales experience and one of the keys to my success in real estate sales is my ability to develop strong relationships with my customers and assisting them with buying or selling a home through needs based assessment. To that end, I was three times awarded the prestigious "Chicago Five Star Home Professional Real Estate Award" in the Chicago Magazine and I highly value this award because it is my own customers who have nominated me. Having been a long time resident in the Northern Chicago Suburbs where my husband and I are raising our own family, I have vast knowledge of the specific neighborhood which I have applied to assist my customers making decisions about buying and selling real estate. Further, I am a skilled negotiator and work hard to make sure that my customer's needs are always at the forefront of every transaction. I work closely with many real estate attorneys, mortgage brokers and other real estate agents and have learned and been successful at negotiating difficult and complex transactions through a team approach.
In my spare time, my husband, kids and I are active with St Paul the Apostle Church, St. Vincent de Paul, Feed My Staving Children, Woodland Schools and youth athletics. Finally, I truly enjoy working in the real estate industry because I get to be a part of my customer's greatest joys which is purchasing their first or a new home for their family.
Clients are saying:
"I have worked with Sue Dunnigan to find 2 rental homes, and most recently the purchase of my forever home. Sue is very adept at quickly learning the home style you are interested in, then she works tirelessly to find you the perfect place.
She negotiated down the monthly rental rate for one of my rentals to find me the perfect home within my budget.
When it came time to purchase my forever home, she was a complete partner in helping to negotiate the price, timing and inclusions.
Not only has she been an amazing resource in helping me to source the "right" home for my family, she also helped to connect me with key service providers in my area that helped with home improvement, mortgage attorney and even insurance. Sue has been an invaluable resource for me during my home journey and I would recommend her hands-down for anyone searching for their next home.
Always available for last minute house showings or for any question I ever had, I always knew that Sue would not stop until I found the exact right fit."
"Sue is a top notch agent. She has an impressive attention to detail. I have a busy schedule and she always had great properties to show me and never wasted my time. Sue was attentive from our first meeting, my sale ended up being very unusual but she handled the problems that came up with extreme professionalism. She insisted the seller provide a home warranty and one week after I moved in the furnace had to be replaced, the home warranty she insisted on covered the furnace with just a 75.00 copay. I can't say enough about Sue, if you want a strong negotiator and someone that will find you the house of your dreams in your stated budget, Sue is the agent for you."
"Sue was so patient and helpful with our family. She guided us every step of the way listening to our wants and needs and offering advice only when we asked. She helped us find a great house, and I will always be grateful to her for that. She is personable, kind, and caring. I highly recommend Sue Dunnigan!"
"Sue was fantastic! When we were searching for our home, we knew what we wanted, but couldn't find that perfect home. Sue accompanied us to any homes we were interested in and guided us to additional homes she thought would interest us. She was very knowledgable of the area and industry. She listened to our needs and helped see past the possible flaws of a house to envision the gem it could be! Thank you, Sue for your professionalism, your expertise in the areas we were looking in, and your patience!!!"
"Sue Dunnigan not only sold our house at top value, but helped us find our dream home! Both closings went really well. Her friendly and professional manner made an exciting yet stressful time so much easier. I would definitely use her again as well recommend her to all of my friends and family!"
